Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD I-, Democrats irked at Ford's veto of touchy bill WASHINGTON (AP) Key Democrats plan to press the United States Congress to override President Ford's veto of what he calls an "unconstitutional and un- workable" bill to amend the Freedom of Information Act. The bill, overturning a 1973 Supreme Court decision in a secrecy-stamping case and closing what the measure's authors call major loopholes in the law, might adversely affect intelligence secrets and diplomatic relations, Ford said as he vetoed it Thursday. "The president is demonstrating an arrogance that would be believable if a man holding a mandate from the people occupied the office of the said Representative John Moss (Dem. who headed an 11-year drive for the Freedom of Information Act enacted in 1967. "But it is unbelievable, almost incredible, arrogance for a man whose mandate comes from a single con- gressional district." The Supreme Court decided that a president could classify documents basically free of judicial review. This bill would give federal courts po'wer to see whether documents were properly classified. Ford argued that this would. mean courts would be allowed to make what amounts to "the initial classification decision in sensitive and complex areas where they have no ex- pertise." Moss, in' a telephone inter- view from Sacramento, Calif., said: "I would rather trust the courts, and I think their action through the whole unhappy history of Watergate proves that we can place our con- fidence in the judicial system of this nation." Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem. who headed Senate supporters of the Shah seeks world aid for poorer countries fund New York Times Service TEHERAN, Iran The Shah of Iran is pressing in international circles for a revival of his eight-month-old proposal for the creation of a development fund of several 'billion dollars to ease the problems of poorer countries caused by high oil prices. The proposal has been largely ignored since Shah Mohammed Riza Pahlevi made it here in February after having conferred with international banking and monetary officials. The Shah's idea was that oil producing countries and their major industrial customer nations would provide the money as- loans in co- operation with the Inter- national Bank for Reconstruc- tion and Development, better known as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. PLEDGES BILLION. Iran pledged to support the fund with ah initial billion. The Shah's purpose in trying to revive his proposal now, in the view of knowledgeable diplomats here, is to elicit some indication from the oil consuming nations that they might willing to start serious discussions on the oil price crisis with Iran, if not with the other members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The United States, the diplomats say, has given the Shah no indication that it is inte'rested in his fund proposal. But with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger scheduled to meet here with the Shah on Nov.; 1, the diplomats feel that the monarch may want to use bis proposal as a starting point for a serious on solutions to the crisis.. No agenda for the Shah's talks with Kissinger has been disclosed, but the diplomats say the Shah will almost cer- tainly want to talk about one of his other ideas: that an index be established linking the price of oil to the price of 20 or 30 items the oil produc- ing nations import from the west at costs they consider ex- orbitant. Diplomats here note also that the Shah is unlikely to be persuaded by the Americans that if he does not help lower 6il prices, the United States may curtail sales of the arms he wants to buy. Iran would buy the arms elsewhere in the industrialized west, the diplomats say. legislation, termed Ford's veto "a distressing new exam- ple of the Watergate mentali- ty that still pervades the White House." The bill is "a ,.major effort, by Congress to ensure that the public's business is carried out in Kennedy added, say- ing he will work to override the veto. This requires a two- thirds vote of both the Senate and the House of Represen- tatives. Consumer advocate Ralph Nader said the veto "demon- strates that the Nixonian ap- proach to government still prevails at the White House and that the promise of open government was merely cruel rhetoric." The Freedom of Informa- tion Act provides that a citizen may see any govern- ment document except for nine exempt categories rang- ing from trade secrets to law- enforcement investigatory records. The bill, which the House passed by 349 to 2 and the Sen- ate approved by voice vote, was the product of more than three years of congressional work. Under the bill, right-to- know cases would gain precedence on appeal-court dockets; a 30-day time limit would be fixed for government replies to lawsuits; there would be a narrowing of-agen- cies' power to withhold in- vestigatory files compiled for law-enforcement reasons; and agencies would be required to keep an index of documents so the public could keep track of them. 'Beef plan little help to producers' SYLVAN LAKE (CP) Gordon Towers, the Conservative member of parliament for Red Deer, said here this week that the federal government's recently instituted beef stabilization plan offers' little help to cow-calf producers, those most affected by current depressed prices. He was speaking to 200 district cattlemen at a public meeting in this community, about 15 miles west of Red Deer. Mr. Towers said the wjiole beef price problem started when the federal government introduced the lift program lower inventories for tomorrow a number of years ago which en- _ couraged farmers to get out of grain and into beef production. He said when you advise people to do something they are not acquainted with it costs them money, and throws the whole in- dustry out of equilibrium and does nothing but cause problems. "This is exactly what happened." He said now that grain has gone back to a price where farmers can maintain their grain industry, they are unloading their beef on the market and this is what is hurting the beef men. rs BRIDGE THADIHG CENTRE FINAL CLOSE-OUT AUCTION SALE 106 5 STREET SOUTH, LETHBRIDGE MONDAY, OCTOBER 21st 7 p.m. TERMS CASH NO RESERVE Partial List Of Items To Color TVs, Hoover washer-spin dryer, coal stove, brass bed, 2 adding machines, floor polishers, gas electric ranges, fridges, complete beds, vacuums, old bottles, wood chairs, electric guitar amplifier, record players, washing machines, pictures, lawn chairs, records.

'Vndisputed star" holds Soviet reins MOSCOW- (AP) On a chill, misty Moscow night 10 years ago, a group of workmen quietly removed a huge portrait of Nikita Khrushchev from the facade of a hotel across from the Kremlin. A day later, on Oct. the Soviet public was told Leonid Brezhnev was the new head of the Communist party. Khrushchev was out and the Brezhnev decade had begun. Brezhnev seems fully in control and in the height of his power, as he completes 10 years at so did Khrushchev at the time of his downfall. In the 57 years of Com- munist power in the Soviet Union there have been only four major Stalin-, Khrushchev and Brezhnev. The first two died in office and Khrushchev was the victim of a new-style li- from of- fice and eradication from memory and Soviet history. It is impossible to predict how long Brezhnev will stay on the world stage. He will be 68 in December .and presides over an aging party and government leadership.' The governing 16-man polit- buro averages 65 years of age. Premier Alexei Kosygin is 70 and President Nikolai Podgorny 71, as are ideologist Mikhail Suslov and Defence Minister Andrei Grechko. The advanced age of the leadership seems to indicate that when changes come they might be sweeping. SECOND TO LENIN Brezhnev presides as chair- man of the board, the Soviet Union's chief spokesman in world and domestic affairs and the most publicized, quoted and praised man in the country after Lenin. After the 1971 party congress, at which he was un- disputed star, there has been no stopping Brezhnev. He has taken over the running of foreign policy and domestic policy. It now is Brezhnev who sets the tone in speaking of the industrial plan or agriculture. The personality buildup has continued. His foreign travels are covered extensively and movies of them are shown for months afterward. Bridge results Ladies Wednesday Afternoon D.B.C.. Oct. t. 1. M. J. Grant and W. L. Waters; 2.
